NY: Extension on legislation suspending drivers licenses for not paying child support
ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo recently signed legislation extending the driver license suspension process for two years to further enforce child support obligations.
The process allows the child support program to identify parents with a drivers license who skip out on paying child support, and then notify them that their driving privileges are at risk of of being suspended unless a payment is made.
"Child support is critical to ensuring kids of separated parents have the resources they need for a healthy and stable upbringing,"Governor Cuomo said."By extending this measure, we will help hold accountable any adult who fails to meet this basic obligation by suspending their driver's license until they step up and address the problem."
